Bean bag chairs are the ultimate furniture item to have in your game room. Once thought of as strictly child’s fare, bean bags have become increasingly more popular for adults in recent years. Since a game room is one of the few times the man gets to be creative and actually make the decisions, you want to make sure you get the best items to make your room the nicest one around. There are plenty of options for furnishing your game room with a bean bag, and I will go over some of the main ones to consider.
Sports Bean Bags
Bean bags with sports logos are probably the first thing you think of when you imagine a game room bean bag chair. This is because sports bean bags are not only comfortable to sit on, but they also add a nice touch of decoration to your room. Say you are a Yankees fan and you are trying to create the ultimate “man cave”. A Yankees bean bag would go great with other Yankees memorabilia in the room, while also giving you or your buddies another place to sit while watching the game. For all of the reasons above, I believe a sports bean bag is the number one choice for your game room.
Large Bean Bags
Giant bean bags, say 6 to 8 feet, are great in a game room setting. If you have children who love playing video games or watching their favorite cartoons on the television, a bean bag of that size will allow the whole family to enjoy these activities together. An 8-foot bean bag can fit up to five people on it.
A really large bean bag is also good to have around because it gives you an extra place for your guests to sleep when they are staying at your place. If your house is really full, no more sleeping on the floor for those unlucky individuals who didn’t get the guest bed. These big bean bags are also easier to sleep on than a couch because you can move around freely, whereas with a couch your movement is very constricted.
Beer/Liquor Logo Bean Bags
Obviously a Budweiser bean bag isn’t the best idea in the world if you have kids using them, but if this is your own personal game room/man cave, a bean bag with a beer or liquor logo is a pretty cool thing to have around. I have a Southern Comfort bean bag chair in my basement, and it is one of the most sought-after places to watch the game when I have buddies over.
Those are some of the best bean bags for any game room that I can think of. It obviously matters what type of theme you have chosen for your game room. You can pretty much pick anything – sports, cartoons, alcohol, etc. The great thing about most game rooms is that it is one of the few times when the lady will actually allow the man to decorate it how they see fit. My wife can choose our kitchen appliances as she wants to, but I can pick what I want in my own game room.
By the way, Amazon has a great selection of Bean Bags.
